About Us

Since 1970, CAT has been successfully treating addiction, making it the longest standing addiction treatment center in the region.

CAT Today

Today, the Center for Addiction Treatment (CAT) treats those with addictions to alcohol, drugs, and gambling. 

Because CAT has grown to treat more than chemical additions, the name was recently changed from Center for Chemical Addictions Treatment (CCAT) but the leadership team purposely chose not to stray too far from the center’s roots. It is still CAT (just one less “c”).  

Conveniently located in the center of the Tristate area, CAT continues to provide personalized care that, along with a commitment from the patient and support from the outside community, brings balance and improved opportunities for recovery.

Services include:

Thousands of people have walked through CAT's doors looking for a better life through sobriety. At CAT, recovery is within reach.


Saving lives and rebuilding families by providing addiction recovery tools.


CAT offers help and hope for a different life by providing accessible care and tools for lifelong sobriety and recovery to patients struggling with addiction to alcohol, drugs or gambling. CAT does this with the goal of saving lives and rebuilding families. 


CAT is supported in part by the Hamilton County Mental Health and Recovery Services Board, the City of Cincinnati and the United Way of Greater Cincinnati. Nearly $1 million of the operating budget comes from federal funding through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Department of Justice. In addition, the center welcomes private donations
